The Panthers said they will not start Newton until he is 100% healthy. This week, the Panthers travel to London so odds would likely favor Allen getting another start. The team follows up their London trip with a bye in Week 7 meaning Newton could be back for Week 8.
Good to see both, especially Kittle, back at practice, even if they aren’t fully contacting yet. We’ll see how the team handles the pair Friday and both get all day Sunday to rest with the game being in prime time. At the very least, both should be considered questionable for Sunday night.
Fuller has not played since leaving Week 7’s loss to the Colts early with that hamstring injury so this will be a very nice return for the Texans for a very important game in the AFC South. Fuller would slide right back in with DeAndre Hopkins and Kenny Stills, opening the field up more for DeShaun Watson. Fuller may not have a big game like he did against the Falcons, but you have to imagine he’ll be back involved in the offense in some capacity, even if it’s limited tonight as he returns from injury.
Eagles RB Jordan Howard is on the practice field again Thursday after being listed as a limited participant Wednesday.
Howard's return would be a welcomed boost to the running game. The Eagles split the work between Miles Sanders and Boston Scott against the Patriots, so Howard would give the Eagles their main 1-2 punch back, with Howard as the 1 and Sanders as the 2. Him practicing Friday would be a good sign he'll be ready to go against the Seahawks.
